I just couldn't resist the purchase of the Royal Doulton mug dated 1936. When you look at the photos, I think you'll agree it is a must-have!

There is a small chain of yarn shops in NZ which this past year sponsored our Knitters' Weekend. As a follow-up they issued this mug - I wonder if they were thinking of me?

For those of you who knit the 4-ply stranded patterns, where do you source your knitting wools?

Here is the latest addition to my tool box. It's the Addi Turbo Cro-Needle. It is a 2.5 mm crochet hook on one end of the cable and a 3.25 mm knitting needle on the other.

I am working on a jumper using DPN's; I now remember why I always avoided them in the past. But, it's not an option with this project so I have to persevere.

This is my latest garment, just off the jumper board -and, just in time for spring and summer so I'll have to wait to wear it until next year.

I just had a look at the attachments to my latest 3 blog entries and I see the photos are the size of a house. I didn't realise it when I up-loaded them.
